About the property: Situated in the centre of the popular coastal village of Orford, 109 Front Street has been lovingly extended to maximise space for parties of up to 8. Catering for both young and old the property has a quiet feel whilst still only being minutes from all the best that Orford has to offer. The traditional wooden beamed sitting room measures the full width of the house with the added bonus of a log burning stove and board games for those long winter nights. To the rear, step into the ultra modern kitchen and dining area, complete with sky lights and bi-folding doors, the room really brings the outside in, creating a light, bright and open entertaining space. The upstairs bedrooms can be accessed via two staircases, one quite narrow. A further bedroom can be found in the outside Annexe, complete with en-suite. In fact the Annexe itself is tailored to the holidaymaker, complete with ground floor games room and small kitchen area, overlooking the garden - so perfect for outdoor barbecues.
Outside: The garden is fully fenced with a 5 bar gate separating the garden from the drive and the road. Complete with trampoline and games room, children will be entertained for hours as they play a game of pool or sit down on the bean bags to watch TV. The patio area has table and chairs for all guests.
This property is ideal for: Within 200 yards of the recreation ground children will love the well equipped playground and playing field. Just a short stroll from Orford's attractive quay, with its constant attraction of small sailing crafts and yachts, and boat trips to Havergate Island and Orford Ness, there is lots to do and see whatever your age or interest.
One of the most attractive coastal villages on the East coast, Orford retains both a fascinating 12th century castle and church. Well provided with village shop, bakery, butcher, a fresh fish stall, craft shops, excellent restaurants and traditional pubs everything is on your doorstep.
On the banks of the Ore, Orford is protected from the sea by a fascinating shingle bank, Orford Ness, which runs from Aldeburgh to the sea. Accessible by ferry, Orford Ness is now managed by the National Trust; here you can find out about this strange and ever changing landscape, the many ground nesting and sea birds nesting here or trace the mysterious history of the area's war time occupation both for secret development of radar and munitions and in the defence of Britain. From Orford Quay one can take a boat trip to Havergate Island, the first RSPB reserve and home of the avocet.
Orford is within easy access of both Snape and the Snape Maltings Concert Hall and the seaside town of Aldeburgh, where the Aldeburgh Festival began life some fifty years ago.
The market town of Woodbridge is within half an hours drive along pleasant rural lanes and has plenty of interesting historic buildings, galleries, a quayside theatre and restaurant, a picturesque river walk and a great selection of pubs and tearooms.
Eating In: The Orford General Stores stocks almost everything and the staff are friendly and really helpful. The award winning Pump Street Bakery, with an amazing and tempting selection of pastries and artisan bread, made by hand, using traditional methods and natural ingredients is just round the corner. Alternatively, the nearest Waitrose and Tesco are 10 miles away in Saxmundham and will deliver to this address.
Eating out: There are two fine pubs - The King's Headand The Jolly Sailor- and two great restaurants - The Trinity at The Crown & Castle and The Butley Orford Oysterage- within a short walk of 109. A short drive away, cycle ride, or 2 mile walk across fields, is the village of Chillesford and The Froize Inn, which is rustic, charming and has an excellent menu.

It was an excellent property for us - just the right size so everyone had their own space and we loved the kitchen/dining area as it was great for getting together (we have friends in Orford ) Highly likely to book it again next year.
